Associate, Program (Philadelphia) – Apply by August 25
We are seeking a results-oriented person to join our Greater Philadelphia Program team, who will support the Program team to meet its ambitious goals, and ensure that we have the operational resources to implement region-wide priorities.
The Associate, Program is responsible for the operations of the Program team, increasing the team’s efficacy and effectiveness. This staff member is responsible for providing the regional program team with the data reporting and analysis that is necessary to effectively track progress to goals, reflect upon successes and areas for improvement, and make course adjustments to ensure the team meets its goals. The Associate will also manage team systems and operations, corps member communication (incoming and current) and provide support on the planning and execution of team and small corps member events.
The environment is exceptionally fast-paced and demanding, and the ideal candidate must be a natural self-starter who has a keen attention to detail, the ability to anticipate problems, and a collaborative work ethic. This position offers a unique opportunity for an individual who excels at data analysis and enjoys creating and maintaining organizational systems. An individual would be particularly motivated in this role if s/he is energized by manipulating and interpreting data, enjoys supporting others, possesses a strong customer service orientation and feels confident and comfortable managing up to others.
Additionally, the Associate, Program works collaboratively with associates and coordinators across the region’s functional teams. This role reports to the Director, School and Regional Partnerships (D,SRP).
Philadelphia is the birthplace of our nation’s democracy and boasts a history of momentous events and admirable leaders. Yet despite centuries of innovation and progress in the city, there is still much work to be done. In the School District of Philadelphia, fewer than 1 in 5 students graduate, enroll in college, and persist even into their second college year. It is clear that not all of Philadelphia’s students are getting the education and opportunities they deserve. Since 2003, Teach For America has been working in partnership with schools and community members across Philadelphia to change this reality.
Our team will be laser-focused in working towards four overarching 2025 goals:
IMPACT: Our teachers, corps members and alumni, work with students to achieve daily positive impact
DIVERSITY: We are as diverse as our city in our perspectives, approaches and programs
LEADERSHIP: Our alumni in school, system, and community leadership positions shape the conditions for our schools to thrive
PARTNERSHIP: We all find ways to serve, lead, or partner to improve life opportunities for our students
